Lunchbox muffin mix recipe

A brilliant basic muffin mix from children's cookery school leader, Beverley Glock. Simple enough for little chefs, this recipe can be used to make savoury or sweet muffins

Serves 12


  • 225g self raising flour (or mix half wholemeal and half white flour for a healthier version)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 75g melted butter
  • 175ml semi skimmed milk
  • 1 egg
  • Approx 200g fresh fruit or vegetables chopped
  • For fruit muffins also add 100g soft brown sugar


How to make lunchbox muffin mix

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/Gas mark 6.

2. Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix to get rid of most of the lumps.

3. Mix in the fruit or vegetables of your choice, split between 12 muffin cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

Tip: The cooked muffins freeze well for up to 1 month
